on the government response, i spoke a short time ago to the u.s. congressman who represents atlantic city. i asked him what he needs the most. >> we need to get set up because of the devastation that it has caused so many people and this loss, as your reporter described. parts of north jersey, this is the lowest 1/3 of the state. there are parts of north jersey that have lots of structural damage. this has come into homes and businesses that will just be devastating. if you could imagine attempting to clean up without power, how much more difficult that is. getting power restored is of a primary concern, especially along the coast. >> i know it has only been a couple of days, but do you have any sense of how long this will take? the president has said that they will be with the residents of new jersey for however long it will take. >> it will be quite a while. i had an aerial tour with the coast guard this morning and we stressed from the delaware bay which is essentially the delaware bridge. those are rather small communities. they were totally devastated. houses that were crushed like matchbooks
not tolerate a republican governor saying i am not going to accept money from the federal government to help get the lights back on. we will suffer through this as a state. >> right. >> and eschew any help, people wouldn't stand for it. but they will stand for it when the help is about something a little less immediate. if a republican governor said we're turning down this money to fix our schools or unemployment. >> or to build high speed rail. >> or high speed rail. >> internet. >> when the republican governor turns that money down, people don't see the immediate consequences and they don't seem to react. but imagine what they would do if chris christie had stood up and said we're not taking obama's help on this? >> i think it's two things. i think that it's absolutely christie actually being who he is. i don't think that whole idea that he was being totally phony is fair. but i also think that christie has been the attack dog for president obama specifically and so he's kind of effusive praise seemed really shocking on the one hand but i think truth has been such a casualty when it comes
have realistic expectations, but what i can promise is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done. we're not going to tolerate red tape. we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy, and i instituted a 15-minute rule, you urn everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes, whether it's the mayor's, the governor's, county officials, if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> eliot: for more on the crisis left by hurricane sandy in and around new york and new jersey let's go to "abc news" correspondent brandy hit in lower manhattan. thanks for joining us. >> hi, eliot. >> eliot: what is the latest you can report in terms of transportation hospitals power, evacuation, what have you heard most recently from those in charge. >> there is a lot to update for you. first when it comes to power. the power is slowly starting to come back online in lower manhattan. that's a good sign. when it comes to transportation we know there is limited subway service tomorrow morning. in manhattan you can
% and is a firm believer that the 1% will take care of everything else. he does not believe in government. he does not believe in big government. host: another article in "politico" -- next call comes from mississippi on a republican line. what do you think? caller: i think governor romney would reach across the aisle. president obama definitely has not ever reached across the aisle. he pushed his obamacare through without any thought of what the people of america wanted. he is limiting health care for the older people. he is trying to pretend he really cares about people by going to these flooded areas, and that is not going to wipe out his record of working against the people of america. host: on our independent line, gabriel. caller: i think that overall, the party that would be most willing to compromise and come to a situation no room and discuss the politics that we need to be discussing past to be the democratic party. there are a lot of things that i do not support about the democrats and the republicans. i think overall that in order to get the things done that we need to have done, there
government has stepped in to help. this is the third hurricane i've covered in my lifetime, andrew, katrina and now this. we are at the point where the population gets furious and they turn on the government. the government can just not handle the huge, huge logistical requirements that happen after a storm like this. could this actually turn on the president at some point here? >> reporter: i don't think so. i think what the president has had the opportunity to do is show americans that he was involved in an effort that the country was rallying behind and do his job in a way that got praise by the keynote speaker at the republican convention, chris christie, very tough critic of the president otherwise. so i don't think many voters are going to blame president obama for what's going on right now, and leave aside the fact that the states in which the difficulties are occurring db new york, new jersey, connecticut are all reliantly democratic states. what is much more important to the outcome of this election, michelle, is what's going on behind me at this afl-cio phone bank where union volu

need government to step in and solve these problems. most of the heroic things have been done by businesses, families and churches. president barack obama has dealt with this crisis. it did not hurt that the governor of new jersey, you know, had very complimentary things to say about him. we will see if this caused a bit of a stall in the bit from a momentum we have seen over the last few weeks. connell: we stopped to asking questions like that the past couple days, for obvious reasons. we try to look at these sites that aggregate the polls. on average now it is all tied up nationally. i am sure the national polls that it was as we get to the last few days. the president seems to have a lead in ohio. how would you handicap it, if you are looking at it back i have been looking at the polls all morning. they do show, basically, a dead heat right now. probably had a two or three-point lead a week or two ago. the storm, a lot of people -- connell: i have to interrupt you. we have breaking news now with a briefing of the mayor, michael bloomberg. >> let me caution everyone listenin
opportunists who will try to take advantage of instability and destabilizing influence and nascent governments or failing governments. and these opportunists are maybe unpredictable. and i always use iraq as an example. there's lots of opportunists in iraq. iran, turkey, saudi arabia, kuwait, nonstate actors. all opportunists trying to take advantage of a situation. how does that project itself around the world? what does that mean to us as we look at the future of conflict? the cast of conflict is changing, the operational environment and conflict is changing, but in my mind the fundamental nigh ture of war remains the same. that's the struggle to influence populations and governments. that has not changed. so it's how we continue to understand that struggle within the new operational environment and context that we see it. the army was created 237 years ago to defend this great nation and in my opinion that imperative has not changed. so as i adapt the force for foot ture, the one thing i tell everyone is that we are starting from a position of strength. why do i say that? because the army s
been bottlenecked. >> earlier today the federal government waived a allow that prevents foreign ships from carrying fuel between u.s. ports. that should help. but the white house said there is been no decision whether to release oil from strategic reserves. johnathan hunt is live bay bridge, brooklyn tonight. if the tankers are on the way, how long until the fuel gets to the people who need? >> it's still going to be some time. whatever officials say about the help being on the way. the problem here is that new york harbor where i'm standing right now has been closed for the very good reason that they were very worried about the sort of debris that might be in the waters and might pose a threat to the shipping. but now you have the tankers that are waiting outside the harbor. first of all, you have to get the barges to them, then you have to go through the long process of pumping all the gas and oil from the tankers to the barges. then they have to get back in here to the terminals. but nonetheless, governor cuomo of new york said nobody panic, help is coming. listen. >> there is no r

by the volt, bogged down by a pension, bogged down by government interference, i don't know. >> all of solvable exception the pension problem. they didn't go through a regular structured bankruptcy which is what romney said they could do. yeah, but governor romney there was no private finance, remember the financial markets were collapsing and yet if you read his op-ed and i did the other way, 2008 op-ed put it in restructured bankruptcy and then have government-- >> as a back stop. >> a lot of conservatives don't like that, but you can see what he was talking about. charles: it would have worked, i agree. >> and what's key tt bankruptcy, it would have lowered their labor costs and would have been a requirement in the bankruptcy they're at $80 an hour and now at 60 when the competition is 40. ford is doing better versus what chrysler is doing. look what happened with chrysler, they're in trouble and they're trying to attack romney in ohio and not working and even mother jones, overliberal mother jones says that romney is right, chrysler is going to be-- >> and here is the thing, and
. to the one who governs seas and quells the storms, we thank you for offering each life and granting hope in times of calamity. we come to you on the eve of this election seeking wisdom. for failing to take up the calls of the fatherless, we ask for mercy. for insufficiently defending the case of the widow, we humbly repent. teach us to fear you and keep your commandments. may we learn to do good, seek justice, and rebuke those who would oppress your children. restore our rulers as at the first, and our judges as at the beginning. that we might be called a nation of righteousness, of faithful people. may we be redeemed by justice and those repent by righteousness. let the retched poor, pitiful, naked, and blind experience the transformation of your grace so that your name, o lord, might be exalted among the nations. amen. the speaker pro tempore: thank you, chaplain. pursuant to section 3-a of the house resolution 788, the journal of the last day's proceedings is approved. the chair will lead the house in the pledge of allegiance. i pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of am

is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. and the directive i have given-- and i said this yesterday but i will repeat and i think craig and others who are working with me right now know i mean it-- we are not going to tolerate red tape, we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy. >> woodruff: meanwhile, republican mitt romney returned to the campaign trail today with three events in florida. the g.o.p. presidential nominee also mentioned the ongoing recovery in the northeast. >> this is... this is quite a time for the country, as you know. we're... we're going through trauma in a major part of the country, a kind of trauma you've experienced here in florida more than once. and... and it's interesting to see how people come togetr in a circumstance like this. we've seen folks from all over the country step forward and... and offer contributions. >> woodruff: bumps in the recovery were evident in new york city late today, where the public, bellevue hospital , started evacuating about 500 patients
're a government employee, your due goes to the unions. now you have to choose. you have to -- >> by employee. >> so this is really an attempt to fire wall in michigan and try to push back. >> so, are the business groups sufficiently mobilized here to actually fight back or have they been caught napping and they could lose? >> they could lose. we suggest it would be -- issues coming up in california as well where unions are fighting initiatives to reign them in, public sector unions are the only entrenched lobby in america fighting for big government and the taxes to pay for it. and that's really the bigger battle in michigan, and across the country now. >> if it spreads it will be an empty victory because businesses in states like michigan and ohio, wisconsin, will move out. they'll go down to tennessee, kentucky, south carolina, and texas, leaving those state with nothing but these enormous public debt to the union. >> colin, where does this stand electorally now? >> it's extremely close, actually. it's within the margin of error, and this is something that the detroit news said in its rece
and this is just a snapshot. it appears that in guess what sector is starting to pick up? government. the government appears to be -- that one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy. that's not where i think americans want to see the growth. one other quick point. paul over the last two years the sector of the economy created the most jobs has been the oil and gas industry. the very industry that barack obama has been trying to hold back. >> now he is saying, i'm all in favor of that. i'm a big backer of that. which if that happened in a second term would be a good thing. >> well, if we have a bubble in energy prices, you know, that great job creator may not be there. >> natural gas is no bubble because the supply is so enormous. take your point on gasoline otherwise. well, president obama may be touting an economic turn-around, but will whatever progress we have made come to a halt in january with that so-called tax cliff looming. americans are set to face a this is awesome! folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. i'd say happier than a slinky on
to go to the federal government for help. they can go to sba,. they actually can call our company. we are assisting businesses. they can call us. we will work with them to bring in the government agencies so that they can get financial assistance if they qualify for it. gerri: and you can do it yourself. you don't have to have an intermediary, although you can choose to. there is tax relief, how so? >> that is a question. in terms of tax relief, there are questions as to whether the legislators were going to reach out and provide tax benefits for businesses that have been affected by the disaster. historically we have not seen that, but it is being discussed. gerri: free legal services to be available from fema. is that typical? >> it is. the federal government reaches out and tries to do what i can't help small businesses. that is available from the government, where you can get those types of services. gerri: the cdc will have some clean-up tips. is that on their website. >> absolutely. you can go to cdc and get those helpful tips as well. gerri: i know people tonight are sitting at
the federal government is ready. >> my message to the governors as well as to the mayors is anything they need, we will be there. we're going to cut through red tape. we're not going to get bogged down with a lot of rules. we want to make sure we're anticipating and leaning forward. >> the romney campaign canceled his events in virginia yesterday. instead, he joined paul ryan on a bus tour of ohio. >> i know that right now some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm about to hit the coast, and our thoughts and prayers are with the people that find themselves in harm's way. >> of course, it couldn't come at a more important time politically. there's a new tracking poll out. it shows the president aahead of romney 49% to 48%. that's a three point swing in his direction from last week. before we get to politics, i want to bring in meteorologist bill karins to give us the latest on the storm. bill, where sandy is taking a slight left turn, right? >> she started the turn. this is the amazing part of the storm, history-making part of the storm. what's incredible is this is still a
of government, rather than air to be arrests and monarchees. the united states isn't run by the wealthiest or by some sort of birth rite. we participate by our vote and elect leaders to represent us. president lincoln's gettysburg address is a constant reminder. the government of the people, by the people, and for the people. shall not perish from this earth. one person, one vote. that's a precious right. that's liberal. believing that government should be active in supporting social and political change. so there's the constitution. the founders built in the ability to amend it and to pass laws to form a more perfect union. things like, oh, abolishing slavery and segregation, giving women the right to vote and to choose, repealing don't ask don't tell so regardless of who you love you can serve in the military. plus our government has programs to help level the playing field so that everyone can succeed. like the g.i. bill. the lily ledbetter fair pay act. medicare. pell grants. head start. unemployment. is there anyone who hasn't benefited from at least one of these programs? fairness. t
and power outages, very effectively. lots of folks spreading updates from government officials, power companies and news organizations really helping to get that word out. sandy, new jersey, fema, business, hudson river, tappan zee bridge, all of the top trending topics on twitter. instagram has seen thousands of photos taken. interestingly delaware is the state with the highest amount of buzz around the storm followed by new jersey and then connecticut, but a picture is really what's worth a thousand words, and there are thousands of them. here are just a few. the fdyn, as you with see here, putting up a picture of the waves crashing into the bridge in brooklyn and then if you look over here, we've got a picture of the white house. this is the situation room. president obama tweeting out this very powerful. moving over here, you've got sandbags in jersey city, new jersey, justin solomon out with our reporter brian schactman in montauk tweeting that picture, and that's only gotten worse since then. there's more pictures from monta montauk. nbc's ron allen in atlantic city. check out t
and officials, reassuring that the government will be there to help. >> we're going to get this whole thing -- we're going to get this whole thing set up. >> reporter: at his side republican governor chris christie, a romney supporter. to show he was moving beyond partisan politics. >> he has been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. >> reporter: back on the campaign trail, romney toned down his criticism of the president, coping his message positive as he tries to win over florida voters. >> washington has to begin to come together. >> reporter: accompanied by the state's popular former governor jeb bush, romney emphasized his own record as massachusetts governor of bipartisanship. >> it was not lost on me to get anything done at all, and even to have my veto upheld, i need to have people across the aisle that i could work with. >> remember the president talked about romneysia? well it's contagious. congressman ryan's caught it. >> reporter: vice president joe biden accused the romney campaign of lying in a new ad in ohio that implies the auto
, reassuring them the government would be there to help. >> everybody safe? that's the most important thing then we'll get this whole thing set up. >> reporter: apartment his side was new jersey republican governor chris christie, a mitt romney supporter. recognizing christie for his leadership the president sought to show he was moving beyond partisan politics. >> he's been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. >> reporter: back on the campaign trail romney on wednesday toned down his criticism of the president keeping his message positive as he tried to win over florida voters. >> washington has to begin to come together. >> reporter: accompanied by the state's former popular governor jeb bush romney emphasized his own record as massachusetts governor of bipartisanship. >> it was not lost on me to get anything done at all and even the have my veto upheld i had to have people across the aisle i kwork with. >> reporter: the temporary cease-fire didn't dpoend the number twos. >> remember the president talked about romnesia? well, it's contagious.
will be covered by private insurance. connell: so much for us to talk about today. we also have the government's latest report on jobs. they added 170,000 jobs. the quality of those jobs, type of pay, full or part-time, those are all things we will be talking about coming up. dagen: stocks now as we do every 15 minutes. nicole petallides. nicole: good morning. we are seeing a market that has accelerated selling in this last half-hour or so. the dow is now down 52 points. the vix, the fear index, now has an up arrow. it is interesting to see how we are moving lower now going into trading as if it is really picking up some speed here. the s&p 500 is down one quarter of 1%. some names are good, some not so good. when you talk about starbucks, starbucks is a good outlook. trip advisor and other ones that came in with their quarterly reports. you see a name like travelers, for example, and that is a name that has been weighing on the dow jones industrials. monster, the energy drink, they continue to claim that their drinks are safe. back to you. dagen: thank you. connell: hurricane sandy sweeping t
're getting richer as a nation because of rebuilding its your taking government money giving it to a contractor or whatever the case may be. that has come up. >> it will have an affect on gdp growth but not right away. probably be first or second quarter you will see a little of that but you are right. of the question is where the money coming from, is the insurance companies or taxpayer money, we don't have a sense of it but from an accounting perspective, it will bump up gdp growth a bit in the subsequent couple of quarters. connell: i wonder how much of a slowdown in the near-term we will see. tough to tell. you come to a place like midtown manhattan where we are broadcasting from ended is like any other day but a few blocks south once it gets dark you see a line, a line in the city with a tale of two cities. on the bridges you see lights on one side and darkness on the other side. up here there's commerce in midtown, people doing business, restaurants are open, people don't have power and doing this ourselves and everybody else we are here spending money, doing things, sp
is for the government has a part to play, but individuals have a part to play, too. you've got to be working together so when people -- some of these people, obviously, their pain is genuine and totally understandable. but some of these people did, you know, were told to leave and didn't leave. and you understand why they didn't. it makes sense in human terms, but, you know, there is a responsibility that you have for yourself in addition to what the government obviously has for you. and again, if both sides are woaren't working together, that's when things fall apart. >> the person talking about they're pulling bodies out of water, the economy has to keep going, and there is potentially, meacham, some sort of symbolism as well. they're grappling with that in other towns and communities up and down the east coast are probably dealing with similar types of decisions as they try and move on. >> it's phenomenally complicated. >> really complicated. >> at what point do you show you're strong, restill yebzisil. >> no better way. >> the debate about what should be done after the attacks 11 years ago. it was t
, and that is the government report that comes out friday. government jobs report expectations comes in at a bit less than that. pegging that number anywhere from 105,000 to 130,000. you know, any way you slice it, we're still at a point where we're only adding enough to barely keep up the population growth. it's not going to bring down unemployment in a significant way at this point. it's been kind of stuck. the economy added 114,000 jobs in september. this one is the last option before the election. it takes on that much more importance. both sides are likely to find something to talk about. president obama would say it's better than the 800,000 jobs we were losing when he took office. and romney could come out and say the unemployment rate is still high. and both would be right. economists would say it doesn't really matter. what's going on in your own life? do you have a job? does your spouse have a job? most people will vote with what is happening in their own lives. >> most people hear blah, blah, blah. >> it is really what you're feeling more than statistical. >>> more charges expected in the penn state
